In Another Dimension

By Kaley Dawson

Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

I woke up in a cold, bluish atmosphere. Everything looked blurry to me. I pushed myself up on the palms of my hands to sit up. No wonder it was cold, I was surrounded by ice. The scene looked familiar, like I've seen it before. I looked down, and noticed the clothes I was wearing; a white ball gown and white flats. I looked at my reflection through the ice and gazed with my green eyes. My long brown wavy hair touched my arm as I looked around. I finally realized where I was; in the Ice King's castle.

It had to be impossible, though. This is from a TV show, a cartoon! How did this happen?

I noticed a hole in the wall of the Ice Castle. I quickly rose to my feet and ran towards the hole. It led to the outside land. I could see so much from this view. But I didn't have time to gaze. I knew if he were to come back and see me, I would be locked in a cage, thought to be a princess. I looked down and noticed a big pile of snow. This seemed to be the only way out of the castle. It was either take a fall to the piles of snow, or be locked away.

I could hear steps behind me. I turned around, and there he was. He looked at me, shocked. Too scared, I fell backwards, screaming, and landed in the snow. I could barely move. The fall hurt my back. I crawled out of the pile and towards a nearby forest, but the cold air stopped me. I couldn't go any farther. I just lay there in the snow, alone, in the dark.

I looked up and spotted two figures running towards me. One of them knelled down in front of me. I barely heard one of them say "Are you alright?", but I couldn't speak at the moment. I was too tired and weak to do anything. The one kneeling brushed the hair from my face to get a better look at me. I noticed him shocked, but I didn't know why. I blinked, realizing who it was; Finn and Jake. Finn lifted me into his arms and sat on Jake, who stretched us to a less colder place.

Finn sat me on a warm couch, and put a blanket over me. I opened my eyes and blinked. Finn whispered something, but I couldn't make out what he was saying. I finally took up the courage to speak.

"Aren't you Finn and Jake?" I asked, curiously.

They looked at each other, then at me. "Yes." Finn said, still a bit shocked.

I then asked, "Why are you so shocked?"

"You're a human, right?" Finn reached his hand out and touched my neck.

"Why are you touching my neck?" I got goosebumps from his touch. I still felt cold.

His hand rubbed against the skin on my neck. He smiled, but still looking surprised.

"You are a human!" He smiled again.

I then remembered how he is the only human known to live in the land of Ooo. I smiled, too. "Yes, I am."

Jake and Finn both looked at each other, laughing and smiling. It was sad knowing he is, or was the only human in this land. I wrapped the blanket around my shoulders, which was the only part of my body, besides my neck and head, that were exposed. I sat up in the process and grinned. I was still tired, but not so much weak.

"Jake, why don't you get something warm for her to cool down?" Finn asked him.

"Do you like hot chocolate?" Jake asked me.

I nodded. He left the room to go make it.

Finn sat next to me. "So...how old are you?" I could see the hope in his eyes.

Knowing my answer would make him happy, I smirked and answered, "Thirteen."

"That's how old I am!" I could see the red in his cheeks.

Finn and I chatted for a while until Jake came back with the hot beverage.

"Thank you." I said, taking the cup he offered to me.

I could see he made two for him and Finn. We each took a sip. I grinned at how great it tastes. Jake put in about seven mini marshmallows. I looked over at him and made a thumbs-up sign with my free hand. He smiled.

"So how did you end up in the Ice Kingdom?" Jake asked.

I looked down, trying to remember what happened. "I don't know. I just woke up in this castle made of ice. But I do know about the Ice King, and what he does. He would have thought I was a princess and put me in a cage. So the only thing I could do was to jump out of the only exit there was..."

They both frowned. "You're not a princess?"

"No, at least I don't think so. I woke up in this dress but I don't know where it came from." I frowned.

It was silent for a moment until Finn spoke. "What's your name?"

"Elizabeth." I grinned a bit as I said that.

"That's a nice name." Jake added.

After sitting on the couch for a few minutes, more questions came to mind.

"What time is it?" I asked.

"About three in the morning." Jake answered.

"Really? Why are you up so early?"

"We heard you scream. We came as fast as we could." Finn had worry in his eyes.

"Thank you." As I said that, I pulled them both in a hug. I could tell Finn was blushing.

Finn hugged back. I let go and thought about how helpful they have been. Rescuing me from the cold and warming me up in their own home. I looked at them both. "I'm sorry about waking you." I laughed a bit.

"No problem." Jake said.

"Do you live near here?" Finn asked.

I frowned. "No..."

Jake spoke up. "Where do you live?"

"Um..." I didn't know how to answer the question. Should I tell them, or should I make something up? But I know I can trust them. "You wouldn't believe me if I told you..."

"We've seen strange things before. It can't be that strange." I could tell Finn was curious.

"Well...OK. I'm not from this...world. I'm from another dimension, I think."

Finn and Jake were trying to process this information.

"Another dimension?" Jake seemed a bit confused.

"I think so..."

"I bet you want to go back, huh?" Finn looked a bit sad.

"Well..." My life is crappy back home. But I don't want to go into that. "not really. Trust me, my life is better off here."

Finn smiled, but he had a hint of sorrow. "We should get to bed. If you have any problems, our room is up there." He pointed to a ladder.

"Thank you." They got up from the couch so I could lay down. Jake said "goodnight" and went to their room. But Finn stayed.

He put the blanket on me. He smiled as he said "Goodnight, Elizabeth."

"Goodnight, Finn. And thank you." He left to his room, smiling.

I realized I still had my flats on. I quickly took them off and put them to the side of the couch. I curled up in my blanket and closed my eyes.
